As their name implies, THE GREAT OLD ONES are heavily inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Like the sinister novels and stories of the American gothic horror icon, the music of the French act delves into the forbidden, dark, haunting, and violent spheres of art. Their forthcoming third album, ‘EOD – A Tale Of Dark Legacy’ marks another big step in the band’s fast rising career.
THE GREAT OLD ONES state: “I see it at the horizon, like in my nightmare, a gigantic black swan, the devil reef, fascination and fear”* We are very proud to present this first track of taken from our new our new album ‘EOD – A Tale Of Dark Legacy’. We think that “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” stands for all that we wanted to achieve with this record: it is powerful, violent, epic, and of course heavily atmospheric and emotion driven. In the context of our conceptual story, this chapter tells of the arrival of the protagonist in the eponymous infamous city. He is gazing over the derelict harbour and remembering the frightening journal of his ancestor, he knows that nothing will ever be the same again. I penetrated into darkness, visions of chaos, visions of death, churches to ashes, demented cult, only signs of sickness.”*
